Montréal



Montréal's metro stations are filled with works of art, and lots of them are architecturally interesting, too. Materials most used are steel, ceramics, and concrete, which has been used in a sophisticated way. Here's a tour:

We will start at Bonaventure, where the central railway station (Gare Centrale) is and head for the best stations first. The most artistic and architecturally interesting stations are on the south-western branch of the Green Line, the north-western branch of the Orange Line, and on the Blue Line.

So from Bonaventure we'll take the Orange Line up to Lionel-Groulx and change to the Green Line (direction Angrignon). When we come back to Lionel-Groulx, we continue on the Orange Line, then change to the Blue Line at Snowdon and change back to the Orange Line at Jean-Talon. At Berri-UQAM we ride the short Yellow Line and return, then change to the Green Line and go to Honoré-Beaugrand and back to Peel. There's an underground shopping mall connecting Peel with Bonaventure where we started.
